Federica Mingolla was born in Turin in 1994. She entered in the vertical history a few years ago for being the first italian woman to free climbed Tom et Je Ris in Verdon and Digital Crack on the Mont Blanc’s massif. In addition to mountaineering and federal of FASI, she’s a student in Physical education in Turin at SUISM. Federica, 56 kilos and 1.68, a bundle of muscles and strenght shoulders, is today as one of the most interesting italian woman in the Rock Climbing and European Alpinism scene. Her passion for climbing borned at the age of 14 in the indoor gym. She began a National Athlete from 2000 to 2014. In 2013 she placed second at the Lead Italian Championship. She also qualified for the World Competition but the growing passion for the outdoor pushed her to moving away from competitions’ world. In 2014 she discovered rock climbing and a new irresistible passion was borned: in just two years she improved quickly till the 8b+. It was a big change, thanks to Adriano Trombetta, his mentor and member of the Turin’s Mountain Guide, recently dead in a tragic mountain accident. “The rock for me has been a revelation: like discover how to climb for the first time”. Definitely out from the competition world, Federica has found her way. Her specialty is TRAD climb: “The type of climbing that most fascinates me is the most mentally and dangerous. It calls TRAD climbing or traditional climbing and it is that one you can usually find in big wall and practiced by the first wall climbers long time ago. You must be focused and synchronized because the protections are often far away and precarious”. As well as practing different styles of climbing she began to pursue her dream to become an Alpine guide. For this reason she is training also on skiing. Federica had already completed in 2016/2017 the Stage Proguides, a high-level training course for the preparation of the future alpine guides. She works hard not in search of the “grade” on freeclimbing, but for increase her experience and knowledge on mountaineering.
